It’s Camp NaNoWriMo Time!

Regular readers will know I use NaNoWriMo as one of my procrastination busters. It provides a clear goal – with a set word count time and a time limit.  Most importantly it is a public pledge/announcement of my intentions. It’s the public bit that spurs me on. It’s like a promise: If I don’t at least…

For those who have not heard of NaNo, it is a personal challenge to write like the wind (gratuitous YouTube link here) and aim for 50K words in one month.

Decisions, Decisions.

I’ve been mucking around for the past two months. Lots of crocheting to get Octoarm scarves ready for sale for upcoming events. A bit of writing here, a bit of writing there. Most of the writing has been on blog posts – with time spent on research, rewrites, photos. Today I realised I have been using…
